The 2017 regular season is here, the banner goes up and the football season begins. Roger Goodell will be in the house, and if you live in a bubble, 70,000 Goodell clown nose towels are being handed out to every fan in attendance courtesy of Barstool Sports. A genius marketing move if you ask me.
Barstool founder, David Portnoy, tweeted out yesterday that he heard a rumor that Roger Goodell will be wearing a Goodell clown nose tee shirt to “diffuse” the situation:
How about this rumor @nflcommish is gonna wear a clown shirt to try and diffuse the situation. Better chance it doesn't get dark tonight

Although very unlikely, this would he hysterical if he did. I don’t think Roger would give any satisfaction to Patriots fans, especially Portnoy. Would this diffuse the situation or at least put this to bed? Not going to lie, if Roger did this, I would only think he’s 99% scum instead of 100%. If this happens, Portnoy can just go ahead and drop the mic and retire.
After how upset he got after Matt Patricia wore one after the Patriots won the Super Bowl, it seems unlikely.
